Contact Jacqueline Sharuzi:


Throughout her two decades of practice, Jacqueline Sharuzi has devoted herself to the defense of hospitals, doctors, nurses, mid-level providers, dentists, long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, and other corporations. Her broad skill-set has allowed her to defend diverse lawsuits alleging various forms of medical negligence and Section 1983 claims.  

From inception to trial, Jacqueline is an aggressive litigator. Her ultimate goal is a favorable resolution in the best interests of her clients. To accomplish that, she identifies weaknesses in her opponents' cases and pursues them through the use of targeted discovery, all while shoring up her clients' defenses.  

Jacqueline has chaired dozens of high exposure cases to verdict in various counties in the greater Chicagoland area and Colorado. These verdicts include cases alleging catastrophic birth-related injuries, pediatric care, emergency room care, psychiatric care, surgical care and negligent hiring/supervision, to name a few. 

Jacqueline is also a proficient writer, who firmly believes in pursuing dismissal of cases or allegations by way of motion practice before they reach the courtroom. By keeping up-to-date with the relevant law, Jacqueline has successfully secured the dismissal of cases in their entirety through the use of appropriately timed motion practice.

While trials and verdicts are typically the barometers by which a litigator's career is measured, Jacqueline appreciates and identifies cases that merit prompt resolution, either by way of arbitration, mediation, or settlement. By listening to the specific needs of each client, Jacqueline is able to effectively counsel her clients regarding their options on cases that warrant early resolution.  

The needs of her clients have taken Jacqueline across the country to California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Florida.


Jacqueline and her family live in Boulder, Colorado, where they enjoy an active Colorado lifestyle that includes hiking, biking, and skiing.
